Recipes for Summer

Super POwer Smoothie

This smoothie is my go-to breakfast during the summer. Filling, energizing, and up-lifting, it’s loaded with nutrients without compromising on taste. It can be stored in the fridge for several hours and used during the day as a "pick me up" instead of coffee.

Lemon Cookies

I often serve these cookies with hot tea after my special Friday night restorative yoga class. They are easy to make, and people love them! Some people might not remember the yoga class, but they always remember the cookies.

Chocolate covered strawberries

I make these for special occasions and when I want to impress my guests. When arranged on a nice platter, they look delicious and very festive. For extra fun, I serve them with a glass of champagne or wine.

Cooling Summer salad

There is no better time to eat fresh, organic, and raw vegetables than during summer. Cucumbers, tomatoes, leafy greens, and fresh herbs can make the summer meals refreshing, hydrating, very nutritious, and delicious.

Sun Tea

Sun tea is a flavorful version of traditional iced tea, but the heat of the sun infuses cold (or room temperature) water with a choice of ingredients, including herbal, fruit, black, green, or white tea leaves with or without caffeine.
